    Well ya, you know the Liberals love a Victim. The Liberals always back “the little guy” They think the “big guy” is always the bully.
    32 tunnels have now been found? Child labor was used to build most of them. I think 4 of them were found to lead right into Israel. Those caught tell the tail of sneaking in and kidnapping and suicide bombings. But yet the Liberals cry but but that is how they feed them self. Really? and how much has been spent on the 7,000 rockets fired at Israel? Seems to me that a lot of road could have been built and a lot of bread could have been bought with the money and time it took to build the tunnels and build and buy the rockets. And why would anyone want to help “Free” Palestine when all they do after they get a cease fire is re lode

    @dtroutma debunking all five of those myths???

    ??
    um what?
    really?
    um what are you talking about?
    myths?
    The tunnel system is a myth? The call for the destruction of Jews and Israel is run on Palestine TV as Saturday morning Cartoons and Costumes ranging from a mouse to a bunny with sign along on how best to kill the Jews. I have shown you the links.

    Ah, Harley, so you say the end justifies the means? That Israel can mistreat the people of Gaza in any way they see fit, up to and including total extermination like “rats in the walls”? Seems to me someone else had those ideas, fellow named Hitler in the 30’s. Ah, me, how times do change. Then the Conservatives in the USA happily supported extermination of Jews, now they support extermination of Palestine citizens.

    Not just Gaza. The West Bank as well… or at least what’s left of it.

    Oh, Ariail, thank you for this one. It sums up the current debate very accurately

    You really make yourself seem very ignorant for an “old” person. He didn’t say “the ends justify” anything. You have to lie to make a point. That’s the first clue that you are not being honest.

    Did you read that piece of lies? No wonder your brain doesn’t function well. You have to stop putting garbage in it…. That was yellow-journalism at its worse.

    I think it is just a cultural difference. The Palestinians see rocket fire as a way to build a relationship with Israel. They think their grateful targets will institute an immediate cease fire to thank them,

    The last decades have shown that Israel has no intention of halting the expansion of settlements, particularly in and around Jerusalem, and Hamas has no intention of ever recognizing the right of Israel to exist.
    Palestinians are in a no win situation. They can’t control their extremist elements and they can’t influence Israel to do those things needed to make the extremists back off. It is very much like our Legislature. Neither side will back down from their positions and both are willing to accept a certain amount, even an extreme amount of negative publicity and damage to the nation in order to get their way.

    It occurs to me that if tunnels are the problem, wouldn’t it be simpler to just run hoses from the sea and fill them with water? As holes fill, the fighters would have to fight on the surface or flee for their lives. Markers could be placed in the water so electronic devices could track them below the surface and perhaps a map indicating ‘safe rooms’ and escape hatches be found.
    I am sympathetic to Israel. Without the Iron Dome, this current round of hostilities would have been much worse. Had half of the rockets fired by Hamas landed in populated areas, Israel would have likely turned Gaza into a parking lots, and the death toll would have been in the hundreds of thousands.
    ^
    On a positive note, Hamas is helping to improve the quality of the anti missile system which, with tensions between us and our cold war neighbors increasing, will help us if we have to start using our own.

    As a Abrahamic Christian, I have hopes that when all of these “Religious” leaders who are getting their people killed face their Creator, they will see Him with Abraham/Abram, Israel, Ishmael, Christ, & Muhammad standing nearby.
    Christians and Jews say God is Love. Muslims say Allah is compassionate and merciful.
    Let them be judged on the amount of Love, Compassion, and Mercy they displayed in life.
    Of course, if the Atheists are right, it won’t matter, but then we won’t care either. I have faith, and hope.
    Respectfully,
    Prayerfully,
    C.
